Film shot in Johannesburg about three rapists who gradually change character. Against the background of the first democratic elections in South Africa, the film is an unconventional investigation of a society characterised as a rape culture. The film shows South Africa as a land in which rape - sexual, verbal, political, moral and psychological - is a normal phenomenon. Three rapists - a Black, a Jew and a Briton - move between fantasy and reality and, despite themselves, reveal the demons that torment them. Paradoxically enough, Kerkhof's brutally harsh film is also an ode to love. A film about rape, dying, forgiving to love and living to be born again.
